I am assuming that all 996 intermittents are like mine where the interval between swipes is so long, even at the highest speed setting, that its almost useless.

Can the timing on the intermittent wiper be changed (relay replacement, whatever)?

With the amount of rain we get in Florida, it would certainly be nice to have an intermittent feature that was effective.

If you are talking about the intermitent wiper mode selected with the wiper stalk, then my car (and I assume all other without rain sensor) has a round knob, low on the left side of the center console, that adjusts the interval .... further clockwise = shorter interval between swipes.

If you are talking about automatic wipers triggered by the rain sensor, then older cars use this same knob to adjust sensitivity, I believe .... and newer versions have no adjustment for sensitivity. You did not state your MY .... so don't know which group you would fall into.

Thanks Kim,

"If you are talking about the intermitent wiper mode selected with the wiper stalk, then my car (and I assume all other without rain sensor) has a round knob, low on the left side of the center console, that adjusts the interval .... further clockwise = shorter interval between swipes."

Yes, its this one. 2004 40th.

Its shortest interval setting is a less frequent interval than the longest interval setting on any of our MB's or BMW's. Its pretty useless.
